Ruby is recognized as the birthstone of July and the gemstone of the 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries.
Red is the color of our most intense emotions—love and anger, passion and fury. It’s associated with objects of power and desire—like fast cars and red roses. Early cultures treasured rubies for their similarity to the redness of the blood that flowed through their veins, and believed that these gems held the power of life.
The gem is also one of the most historically significant colored stones. Rubies are mentioned four times in the Bible, in association with attributes like beauty and wisdom. In the ancient language of Sanskrit, it is called ratnaraj, or “king of precious stones.”
